Jacques J. Morcos, MD, FAANS



Dr. Jacques Morcos is a professor and co-chairman in the department of neurosurgery at the University of Miami, with a joint appointment in the department of otolaryngology. He is currently director of cerebrovascular, skull base, endoscopic and pituitary Surgery there. He is division chief of cranial neurosurgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital and director of the skull base and cerebrovascular fellowship program. His clinical expertise includes all skull base and complex brain tumors, endoscopic skull base surgery, and all aspects of cerebrovascular surgery including bypass surgery for complex aneurysms, ischemia, moyamoya and AVMs.

Dr. Morcos is very active in organized and academic neurosurgery, nationally and internationally. His most recent awards include being selected by US World and News Report (top 1 percent of US physicians, 2017), Patients’ Choice Award (top 5 percent of US physicians, 2017) and International Who’s Who of Professionals (2017).
